To millions of listeners, Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run is much more than a rock-and-roll album-it's a poetic explosion of freedom and frustration. It confirmed Springsteen's status as a quintessential American performer: the rocker who, more than any other, gives voice to our hopes, fears, and aspirations. Runaway Dream chronicles the making of the album that launched Springsteen and his E Street Band into the firmament of American art, deftly sketching the ambition, history, and personalities that combined to create the enduring Born to Run. Springsteen wanted Born to Run to be the greatest rock record ever made. For a musician with just two modest-selling LPs to his credit, it was an extraordinary ambition, and session by session, track by track, Masur shows just how much grit, as well as genius, went into realizing it. Runaway Dream offers an expert tour of the trials and triumphs of Springsteen's work. In addition to the story of the album itself, Masur masterfully places Born to Run within American cultural history, showing why the girls, hot rods, and Jersey nights of the album still resonate, even for listeners born years after its release.

Over the course of a career now in its fourth decade, Bruce Springsteen has earned one of the most passionate, devoted followings in all rock 'n' roll. He's selling more records and concert tickets in his fifties than he sold in his twenties. Yet to many fans he remains an enigma. How has Springsteen produced such a consistent body of work and retained his currency while other top rock 'n' rollers have gone by the wayside? Jimmy Guterman, an accessible and entertaining music writer, has been writing about Springsteen since the late 1970s. In Runaway American Dream, he delves deep into dramatic and crucial moments from every phase of Springsteen's career, interpreting the songs and incisively commenting on the man and the culture at large to deliver a nuanced portrait of The Boss from the earliest days right up to Springsteen's 2005 album, Devils & Dust.

There is little question about the incredible power of Bruce Springsteen's work as a particularly transformative art, as a lyrical and musical fusion that never shies away from sifting through the rubble of human conflict. As Rolling Stone magazine's Parke Puterbaugh observes, Springsteen 'is a peerless songwriter and consummate artist whose every painstakingly crafted album serves as an impassioned and literate pulse taking of a generation's fortunes. He is the foremost live performer in the history of rock and roll, a self-described prisoner of the music he loves, for whom every show is played as if it might be his last.' In recent decades, Puterbaugh adds, 'Springsteen's music developed a conscience that didn't ignore the darkening of the runaway American Dream as the country greedily blundered its way through the 1980s' and into the sociocultural detritus of a new century paralysed by isolation and uncertainty. Bruce Springsteen, Cultural Studies, and the Runaway American Dream reflects the significant critical interest in understanding Springsteen's resounding impact upon the ways in which we think and feel about politics, religion, gender, and the pursuit of the American Dream. By assembling a host of essays that engage in interdisciplinary commentary regarding one of Western culture's most enduring artistic and socially radicalizing phenomena, this book offers a cohesive, intellectual, and often entertaining introduction to the many ways in which Springsteen continues to impact our lives by challenging our minds through his lyrics and music.

Poetry. Native American Studies. Having developed an impressive reputation for his many novels and nonfiction works, Richard Wagamese now presents a collection of stunning poems ranging over a broad landscape. He begins with an immersion in the unforgettable world where "the ancient ones stand at your shoulder...making you a circle / containing everything." These are Medicine teachings told from the experience of one who lived and still lives them. He also describes his life on the road when he repeatedly ran away at an early age, and the beatings he received when the authorities tried "to beat the Indian right out of me." Yet even in the most desperate situations, Wagamese shows us Canada as seen through the eyes and soul of a well-worn traveller, with his love of country, his love of people. Through it all, there are poems of love and music, the language sensuous and tender.

Much to Tom's surprise, it was Gail who started a conversation he had been rehearsing all day. Tom never expected this conversation so soon. He figured maybe when they were back at home for a few days, so he was taken aback and unready for such serious talk. But, Gail brought it up. "Tom, I need to tell you how sorry I am for the way I acted the past few days. I didn't know what hit me but I had a lot of time to think about it and realize I'm jealous. Remember how during the summer my dad and mother always took a week off on their boat by themselves? Mom always said it was a great time for them. It was as though they had run away. That's the way I've been feeling that we should run away once in a while" "Yes, but you ruined that for them one year when they had their boat on Block Island, You did get jealous, and made believe it was just a day trip to surprise them. We took the ferry from the mainland and joined them with the three kids. I think it was a shock to them, but they really made us feel comfortable and we stayed aboard with them for a few days." "Tom, that was a long time ago and we only had the two boys at the time and my father was always glad to spend time with them." "Gail, we ruined their runaways after that year. They never went off without some of their kids, relatives or friends with them." Tom continued. "Somehow or other there were always people with them except when they took that cruise for their twenty-fifth anniversary." "Mom was a little disappointed by the ship, I think she had a more luxurious type in mind. It was February and the weather was awful. Just remember what a disaster that cruise turned out to be?" "Yes, they could have died when that rogue wave hit the ship they were really lucky. But they had a good time anyway." "In a way I'm still jealous. We just had our twenty-fifth and couldn't get away. Too much paperwork to get the boys registered for college, and it costs a ton of money. Allison's parochial school tuition is not much, but she will be graduating soon, and we'll have another college kid to worry about. I think we'll never be able to afford a real vacation." "We don't have a real life of our own anymore. Remember when we used to go down to Second Beach in Newport, spend the days on the rocks, and run through the surf. We sure didn't have a care in the world. How did we get bogged down with all this responsibility?" "Good question," answered Gail, "We were teenagers and now we're grown-ups. We got married, we both worked hard, bought our house, had kids, bought cars, made the house bigger, the kids got sick from time to time, I had an operation, and we had to take care of all those animals. And our circle of friends kept getting larger. Then there are our families, you know how close I am with my sisters and brother. You only have your brother who we don't see too often, his two children will probably be getting married soon, and our extended family will just keep getting larger." "Gail, we are still working hard, maybe harder since the boys started college. It's not family responsibility that comes between us. You're forgetting that your high-powered job not only keeps you away from home a lot, and you really work more hours a day than I do. Also you make so much more money than I do that you are the main breadwinner. Not that I'm complaining, but sometimes it just seems as though it doesn't matter if I work or not." "Tom, you're wrong! It's your income that puts us over the top. We seem to spend every cent I earn, and it's your earnings that give us a really good life. I realized how important your income was when you were sick last year and couldn't work for six months." "Sick? I wasn't 'sick' I had a 'little' stroke.'" That is worse than just being sick. I don't know if or when it could happen again, and it changes the way I think about things. Life is so tenuous. We never know what will come next. Before we know it, both our wi
